May 15th: Play the game.

On this episode, Mike Meehall Wood travels to the border between Serbia and Hungary to see up close the flow of migration from one direction and the violence from the other.

While there, he speaks with Dan Song of the volunteer group Fresh Response in Subotica, Serbia, on the horrific treatment meted out by Hungarian border guards towards refugees trying to cross, or “playing the game”.

Mike also speaks with Mark Kekesi, spokesperson for the Migrant Solidarity Group of Szeged, Hungary. Mark explains the motivations and methods of the one man having the largest impact on refugees’ lives in the region: Viktor Orban.

The Migrant Crisis Podcast

The Migrant Crisis Podcast seeks to cover the ongoing situation involving migration in Europe and beyond. We give a global outlook on events, provide expert analysis of policy decisions (and explain why they matter) and attempt to wade through the media narratives around migration to get the root of the issues. We are unashamedly pro-migrant and pro-refugee, and we always seek to let migrants share their experiences in their own words. We are based in Berlin and London, but our network of contacts is spread wide over the world, from Sydney to Syria and Sao Paulo.
